Dream Backyard Cottages...part II



I'm still dreaming away about having my own sweet little backyard cottage/shed/guesthouse/art studio. We need a shed badly. We came from a house with a 500 sq foot screened in porch with a storage room, to a new house with a tiny backporch and no storage for ugly yard stuff. Right now it is cluttering up the garage.

I want to spice the shed up with shutters, a cupola, a window box for herbs and flowers, and landscaping all around it. Buuut...it looks like the ol' bank account will only allow for a unsightly rubbermaid *thing*. uhg.

So can I transform this...


into this...

Well if you want it bad enough, I'm sure you will find a way to make it happen! Those little garden houses are so cute. I see them more and more in magazines and blogs now.

Do we girls EVER quit wishing for a little gingerbread cottage to play in?

My great grandparents had an actual LOG guest cabin in their yard. When they passed away, we lived in a cute little house with a postage stamp yard, so we couldn't take it. Now we have the room, but it's gone. Sniff.

I'm sure you'll think of a way to spice up your building. Maybe you could host a challenge. :@
